View from Canaan Mt Highpoint
This view is from the 7363' highpoint marked on USGS maps. The snowy mountains in the distance are in the Pine Range, with Signal Peak (at left) the highpoint. Smithsonian Butte is the craggy peak in the mid-distance.

The Canaan ridge narrows at this western end, and the highpoint is actually a set of nice sandstone quasi-hoodoos. This point is a long haul from Water Canyon -- expect at least 18 miles RT.

Any water after Water Canyon in all those miles? My semi-coherent dream, knowing nothing of the area, has been to climb with a light overnight pack and camp on top of the plateau of the mountain somewhere. Make a 2 or 3 day casual experience of it. I would be driving from just north of Salt Lake, so car shuttle is unlikely, I will prob be solo, and I'd have to retrace my steps and do the Water Canyon and Squirrel Canyon loop.

I don't recall any water after Water Canyon, except the occasional (and unreliable) pothole. This is a dry year; I know folks have camped on top, but I'd guess melting snow is the best option. There is little snow anywhere in zion this March.
